The General Assembly of Partners (GAP) is an engagement platform that that aims to support stakeholder contributions to the ‘New Urban Agenda,’ the outcome document of the Habitat III Conference to be held in Quito, Ecuador in October, 2016. For more information about the ‘New Urban Agenda’ see the Habitat III website.
GAP consists of 16 Partner Constituent Groups (PCG) with members from the United Nations’ nine major groups, the Habitat Agenda Partners and other relevant stakeholders. PCGs are involved with the advancement of new ideas and methodologies in the field of sustainable urbanization and human settlement development, including but not limited to, public spaces and streets, urban transport and mobility, climate change and environment, energy, housing and slum upgrading, safety and security in cities.
GAP member organizations are mapped and searchable on this website’s member directory under Type: General Assembly of Partners
The General Assembly of Partners will meet several times in different regions of the world: October, 2015 (New York), December, 2015 (Paris), March (TBA), 2015, Indonesia (July), 2016 and October (Quito), 2016.
The Children and Youth PCG represents agencies and groups that bring the voices of children and youth, especially the most vulnerable, to national and global processes. It is a shared platform for the future leaders and citizens of our cities to advocate for their genuine inclusion in addressing urban vulnerabilities and contributing to key decision making mechanisms that shape the city we need.
Membership is open to all stakeholders with an interest in sustainable urbanization (a group or person may join only one PCG). To join a PCG, send an email to the contact listed with copies to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
